I really appreciate your prompt service. I needed the tape for a Valentine's gift for my husband and it came in plenty of time. I look forward to always using your service. You're the best!

Social Realism

At its core, Social Realism was an artistic movement that sought to illustrate the many hardships and struggles that common people endure. In the United States, Social Realism has ties to other movements, specifically American Regionalism. The Social Realists can also be compared to the 19th century realists, as they are united by the desire to bring attention to the reality, and in many cases, the haunting beauty of the underprivileged. In 1929, the Great Depression left millions of Americans unemployed, and set the scene for extreme poverty and hardship. The very essence of the nation's plight could be seen in the droves of migrants and the working poor. The Social Realists gave the Depression a face, an identity that has endured. The most well-known painting from the Social Realism movement is Grant Wood's American Gothic, a typical example of the style. Notable artists connected to the movement include Thomas Hart Benton, Edward Hopper, and, in Mexico, Frida Kahlo.

I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.

I never saw it mentioned on the web, but it has a terrible smell like sharpie marker. It dries super fast in the package, even keeping it in a ziplock baggie. Other than that .it was ok but Plus clay is much better in my opinion, and similar in all the good ways.

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!
